Question about Toshiba Satellite A15-S127 Notebook
RE: Toshiba Satellite A15-S127:
I removed the original PC2100S-2533-0-A1; 256MB, DDR, 266MHZ, CL2.5; MICRON MT8VDDT3264HDG-265C3; 200 PIN, SODIMM SDRAM, and installed 2 sticks of ELPIDA 512MB DDR PC2700 200-Pin Laptop SODIMM, total 1Gb; (Label on stick reads: 512MB PC2700S-2533-0-A1).
When I run HWiNFO32, a utility program to report hardware, it shows only 512 MB in the Row 1. What is wrong?
The OS is Windows XP.
I saw another posting similar to mine and in it it is advised to check CMOS. Would this aply to my question, also? If so, how to check and revise CMOS. At boot up, I pressed DEL, F5 and F7 keys, but I cannot get to CMOS setting. I only get to the screen to choose Safe Mode, with network, etc.
step one...same or different maker(not that important, but nice to know)
step two..speed of the memory(usually in nanoseconds) these need to be within 25% of each other, max. Same is the best
step three..i don't see the processor compatibility speed on the second set you installed. First one is 266MHz..what's the second set rated at?
I know it fits mechanically, but that's only the basics with memory swapping.
